    Hopefully the WTT will be available to those who have brought it soon. I've been send a TTI turn which is based on the WTT version of the timetable.

    The "add to basket" or "click to book tickets" button doesn't appear if the WTT is included when booking online at the moment...

    I don't think she will make it, it could be the same for the duchess as well?

    Q6 was weighed in the last few days. The q6 blog on the nelpg site suggests a proper steam up next week

    Some whisperings of 80136 as back up for the Q6 if it can't make it. Nothing official as of yet.

    5428 I think would be a bigger draw as I don't think it has visited away from the nymr since its move from Tyseley in the early 70s

    Correct - and Eric's new pre-war LMS livery would look good on the SVR's LMS set, assuming that the Duchess could be prised off them, of course! As far as I can think, 5428 is the only Black Five in LMS pre-War livery and the first time one has carried this since 5305 was repainted into BR colours.

    Would also bring a black 5 back into the mix after 45231 was replaced by 46100
